Imitation Game is a biopic on Alan Turing (pioneer of modern-day computing and credited with cracking the German Enigma code) and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on. 

Films that premiere at Telluride have a history of going on to win the Best Picture Oscar as is exampled by last year’s Academy Award winning, 12 Years a Slave was and previous year’s winner ArgoThat could mean more photo-bombing for Cumberbatch come Oscar time…along with, if Hollywood buzz is correct, an Academy Award nomination!
